with stations in battleground states after this statement. he'll also be traveling to iowa tomorrow. but give us a sense of why the timing, why now is this statement coming out? >> well, in part, richard, because it allows the president to pivot away from last friday's disappointing jobs report and back on to tax fairness, something that he sees really as a winning issue. it's also sort of a reminder of the built-in power of being president in an election year. president obama can use his pulpit to talk about tax fairness for middle classes. you said, president obama will be calling and pressing congress to extend the bush-era tax cuts for folks making less than $250,000. republicans on the hill already armed with their responses. we've been getting eames this morning essentially saying, look, this is a fight we're willing to have because they are framing this as a tax increase on small businesses. the romney campaign also putting out a statement this morning saying that what the president is calling for amounts to a tax increase on small businesses. they think when you stack up the two argument

to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. president obama has put the issue of tax fairness front and center in this election. speaking in the east room of the white house, the president asked congress to immediately extend the bush tax cuts for those making less than $250,000 a year. >> the republicans say they don't want to raise taxes on the middle class, i don't want to to raise taxes on the middle class. so we should all agree to extend the tax cuts for the middle class. let's agree to do what we agree on. right? >> now, i'm going to show you some numbers in a few moments. you can be the judge. this really puts the republicans on the spot. they have to take a position on supporting middle class tax cuts without an equal tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans. now the romney campaign believes the best way to deal with the announcement is to say the president is raising taxes. president obama's response to even more bad economic news is a massive tax increase. here's the problem with the romney camp's statement. it is blatantly false. but they think the head shaking crowd wil

. duckworth lost both legs and use of one arm in iraq. plus, fires in colorado, drought in the west. more than 3,000 temperature records in june. is global warming to blame? this is exactly what scientists had been predicting. how long can the right wing continue to insist that what we're seeing is a hoax? and remember jonathan krone, the 13-year-old darling of the right? >> so i decided there were too many people who through this, the term conservative around, who didn't understand what they were talking about. >> apparently, he admits he was one of them. now he says he was naive and is joining us tonight. in the side show, how the right managed to conclude president obama is abandoning america for evil europe on independence day. never let the facts get in the way after good story. we begin with health care and whether republicans can repeal it. michael steele was chairman of the republican party, maggie habberman writes for politico. welcome. republicans had vowed to repeal obama's health care law. to do that, mitt romney would have to win and republicans would need to retake the senate and
columns are saying give us a plan. because you cannot expect the voters will reject one and go for another if they don't have any idea you're trying to lead them. >> karen, what has this man been doing for eight rear years? i understand he has great ambitions and it's right to want to seek great things, but where's the content? >> that's a great question. somehow, i guess he thought he wouldn't need content and they've been focused on playing a shell game with his taxes and with his money, so that we don't really know what's going on. he's got, you know, that seems more of how they've spent their time. i wanted to add something to what catherine was just saying. part of what's so important about this bus trip, so romney doesn't have answers and if you're sitting in ohio and you see attack ads on the president, but you see president obama there in your county or city talking about what he's done, what he would do, defining the choice and then you just hear romney attacking that, i mean, that's very powerful and that is a very important way for this campaign and this president to break throu
on it. that's "hardball" for now. thank you for being with us.

. joining us now, jared bernstein, former chief economic adviser to vice president biden, and msnbc contributor. jared, good to see you as always. >> great to see you and great to listen to you. >> tell me if i have it wrong. you're a smart guy. you know how to read this stuff. you've read all of the plans many times. you know the obama administration's policies well. are -- and the bush administration's, for that matter. are there major differences between the bush agenda and philosophy and what mitt romney's proposed here? >> no, if anything, governor romney doubles down. on many of the measures you mentioned. it was interesting, you said one thing that's different is rep l repealing dodd-frank. that's deregulation, right, that's the hair of the dog that bit you, and the amnesia that's setting in vis-a-vis financial markets, by the way, actually, i was struck by sandy weill saying all that stuff that he was partially responsible for, it didn't work, so even some people in the banking sector, greenspan recognized it, so this deregulatory trickle down agenda, i thought it was germa
the taxes like crazy. we need freedom. >> good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. mitt romney spoke to the naacp convention in houston, texas today. he delivered a speech short on specifics and long on tepid generalities. >> some may wonder why a republican would campaign in the african-american community and address the naacp. i hope to address every american of every race, creed, and sexual orientation. from the poorest to the richest and everyone in between. >> romney was greeted with polite applause throughout the speech, and even got some encouraging organ music. >> i can't promise you that i'll agree on every issue, but i do promise that your hospitality to me today will be returned. we will know one another. and we will work to common purpose. >> the audience gave romney their attention and a fair hearing. at the end of the speech, the crowd respectfully offered a standing ovation to the candidate. the attendees gave him some credit for showing up. unlike the previous president, george w. bush, who openly shunned any invitations to the naacp convention. but there was on
that the law is largely constitutional, and zero chance the senate will go along. nbc's brian mooar joins us with more details. good morning. >> reporter: hi, lynn. it is strictly for show but plays to the base of both parties. the house is voting today to repeal president obama's health care law. >> we are standing here for the american people against the largest middle-class tax increase in the history of the united states, and we will not stop until we are ultimately successful. >> reporter: democrats point out this is the 31st house vote on obamacare. >> one definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. >> reporter: the next big fight is, who gets an extension of the bush era tax cuts? >> give mitt romney another tax break that would cost -- that would cost about a trillion dollars, and we can't afford it. >> the idea, i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. >> reporter: with washington hopelessly grid
't have used those words. and i apologize for using those words, but i don't apologize for the idea that this president has demonstrated that he does not understand how jobs are created in america. >> john sununu and the romney campaign just couldn't gain any traction with their new attacks, because there's only one thing dominating the campaign trail right now. it's all about romney's taxes. a new poll suggests americans, they want to know what is in mitt romney's taxes. 56% of voters said romney should release the last 12 years of returns. 61% of independents want to see the last 12 years. and it doesn't stop with voters. tea party icon ron paul told politico, "in the scheme of things, politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want." texas governor and alleged romney supporter rick perry had this to say. >> no matter who you are or what office you're running for, you should be as transparent as you can be with your tax returns and other aspects of your life. >> and the editors of the conservative "national review" wrote, "romney's a politician r
do it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz start right now. >> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show" from new york. there are 112 days until the election and breaking news on mitt romney's taxes. one of his former primary opponents is finally saying enough is enough. release the taxes. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> he has no idea how the american system functions because he spent his early years in hawaii smoking something. >> the romney campaign goes into the sewer to distract from mitt romney's tax problem. but new polling proves the american people aren't buying it. >> makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all. >> michael steele and katrina on the unfolding disaster for the romney campaign. john mccain goes rogue and says sarah palin was a better candidate than mitt romney. how long until the republicans reach full revolt? i'll ask howard fineman. and bain capital is about to outsource 170 jobs from a company in freepert, illinois. but the town and the workers are fighting back. they're asking m
and as a husband. and i think that the receason stories like this have such an impact on us is because we can all understand what it would be to have somebody that we love taken from us in this fashion. >> in less than 24 hours after this horrific tragedy, thousands gathered together in vigil, singing and praying, vowing never to forget. >> john blunk, we will all remember. a.j. boik, we will all remember. jesse childress. >> we will all remember. >> nbc's chris jansing leads our coverage from the courthouse in colorado. chris, good morning. the procedure we're expected to see here coming up this half hour, it will be a brief one, correct? >> very brief. it could be as simple as less that be a minute. this is not an arraignment, it's what's called an advisement hearing. and basically, they're saying to the defendant, do you know why you're here? he will be represented by two attorneys from the public defender's office. we're told the two most experienced in that office, dan king and tamara bradley. and there are only three people on death row in colorado, two of them were put there in arapahoe co
heroes, the men and women who served us, it's the last thing they talk about. >> look, it's bad enough to hear this nonsense. but to have no leadership step up to denounce it is just as bad. yes, we've all said things. but we've had to stand up and say they're wrong. and wrong makes you a real leader if you can call it like it is. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> numbers game. let's play "hardball." >>> i'm michael smerconish in for chris matthews. leading off tonight, spin cycle. it's become a monthly ritual. weaker than expected numbers come out. mitt romney says president obama is failing. the president says he's making progress and so it was today when we learned that only 80,000 jobs were created last month and the unemployment rate held firm at 8.2%. how's it going to play in november? that's our top story. despite the weak jobs numbers, republicans are nervous that mitt romney is kicking away a winnable election. it began with a tweet from rupert murdoch and is spreading throughout his media empire. and now a lot of conservatives are saying
incentives here and there. where we used the tax code and penalized and incentivized. that's what's become the mainstream of democratic policy as well. using the tax code, using insentives and penalties and now they're turning around as if this is some ridiculous notion. this is the model they created. >> you're distracting many e. i'm just reading about the tax reform act. it's one of my favorites. >> this thing, by the way, if you can work your way through what romney actually said, it's kind of sort of true in a constitutional way. we have 51 constitutions in this country. 50 state constitutions, one, you know, federal. and some of these state tunes like massachusetts provide in the constitution very broad power for the state legislation to enact things in the general welfare and they don't need the massachusetts constitutional power to tax to ground it, or they don't even have a commerce clause, obviously. and so, i mean, there's a law school class in which there's a point to be made. he's trying to make. but i mean, you can't possibly sell that. >> this is the thing that's always so b
espys swoop in to save us from the slowest day in sports. the question is, would tim tebow steal the show, even in the off season? it's "way too early" for this. >>> good morning, i'm jonathan capehart in for willie geist, and this is "way too early," the show that was twice nominated for best musical score for a newscast. glad you're up with us watching on msnbc or slisenning live on sirius xm radio. you can do what rob wrigle does as text the word awake followed by your response to 622639. we'll read the best responses later in the show. the next 30 minutes will be your cram session for this thursday, july 12th, there's a lot going on today, including new signs that the federal reserve is seriously considering another round of stimulus to help boost the economy. >>> coming up, a live report from cnbc to break down what it all means. >>> plus, fun with charts on the house floor. one congressman continues a long-standing tradition of using ridiculous analogies during house debates. we'll have that clip later in the show. >>> but first, let's get to the news, live at 5:30 a.m. her
class men. the polls are showing us while he is doing well with women and some other groups, this is a group that seems to be wavering between president obama and mitt romney. a recent average, shows the president with less than a three-point lead within the margin of error. on the fourth o of july, he addressed military members saying we need more immigration laws that allow immigrants to stay, like the dream act. mitt romney was up in new hampshire. while he tried to shy away from politics officially, he has been wrapped up in this debate over whether or not he contradicted himself in his campaign over the health care mandate. is it a penalty? is it a tax? romney says the supreme court called it a tax, so it is a tax. his campaign said otherwise. we will likely turn the focus back to the economy as new job numbers come out for june. lynn? >>> scientists at the large hadron collider have announced they have likely discovered the so-called god particle. it may explain how stars, planets, even life, how these things were created and held together. science editor, lawrence mcg
the single most important thing we want to achieve is obama to be a one term president. not, not to get us out of this recession. not to promote jobs. not to do the things that needed to to be done. but make barack obama a one term president. >> let's go ahead and bring in our "news nation" politicalle panel. richard fowler with alice stewart and ann henderson, political reporter for "the washington post." good afternoon to all of you. richard, i want to start with you. did the vice president deliver today in houston? >> the vice president delivered, craig. i got to tell you, the truth of the matter is the vice president went there and told the naacp the truth. we know that mitch mcconnell and republicans want to make president obama a one term president. they are willing to do everything possible to make that happen. they are willing to stall bills, stall job creating measures, do everything to make the president fail and the vice president pointed that out today. >> there was speculation around these parts the white house deliberately decided not send the president but to send joe biden
lost both legs fighting in remark and joins us tonight and our joe walsh highlight reel. exactly how many times did joe walsh stay the name? stick around. robert reich was the secretary during the clinton administration and jared bernstein served with vice president biden. explain to me the substance cht what's going on? >> it's actually job growth has stalled. 8.2% unemployment. same as last month, but we also would see that 80,000 jobs were created in june. the average monthly job growth of the last three months has been about 75,000 jobs. a substantial decline from the job numbers we saw in january, february and march. now, it's a similar to a slowdown we have seen in previous years. the hope obviously is that we get more job growth later in the year. it's hard to make good news out of today's job numbers. >> mr. bernstein, where is it headed? i think we're aware of the statistics that since world war ii, no president's been re-elected when the rate has been north of 7.4%. is it likely that 8.2 could get under 7.4 between now and november? >> absolutely not. you never know, but th
